Australian Furniture Guild Shows 1958 to 1965

Ben found this amazing set of images from the Sydney Guild Furniture Show in 1965 on the State Library of NSW website

 Fler display






  Parker dining room-divine!

 Parker Knoll

 Parker Knoll Study

Vynoid display

It's amazing to see these pieces as they looked when first released, and how they have stood the test of time in terms of workmanship/construction and design. 

Oh to be at that Furniture show...

A visit from Messagemark!

The lovely and talented Kyrie from Messagemark popped into our little shop for a visit a couple of weeks ago. She took some beautiful photos, and also did a lovely post over on the Messagemark blog

It's so great to see the shop through a fresh set of eyes. You can go to the  Messagemark Flickr album of images if you'd like to see more.

We are thrilled to be stocking a range of Kyrie's lovely products, if you don't know the range you should pop on over to the Messagemark site and take a look.

Just one of the beautiful Messagemark "Polyhedra" prints

We are a bit overwhelmed by the support we have received from people like Kyrie who we have admired from afar for many years. It's lovely to have so many lovely people along for the My modern nest ride. Warm fuzzies all round.

Grand Opening

Here are a few shots from our opening party. It was a fantastic day and we were thrilled and very surprised by the turn out. Around 200 people came through on the day! A huge thank you to our amazing friends and family that were a huge help in the lead up to the opening. And to our very patient and neglected children for being so good about being stuck in the shop for the last few weeks.

We have a shop!

We are thrilled beyond belief to announce we have been accepted to be part of the Port Adelaide renewal project project, and we have one (well 2 actually) of the shops! Here is an image of the beautifully restored building we will be moving into.

We've had a chance to chat with a few of the local galleries and businesses and have received very positive feedback. There seems to be a lovely community spirit at The Port and everyone has been very welcoming and supportive. Now to get cracking getting ready for our opening of My modern nest.

The building also houses a fantastic community project called Ladder, which provides independent living accommodation for kids at risk of homelessness. There are some amazing images of the finished building on the architects website here.

We have a busy and exciting few weeks ahead. Hooray!
